Made for These high-top waterproof boots, which were co-designed with trekking enthusiasts, are for walking very comfortably on easy tracks. Are you seeking waterproof leather boots to walk on clearly marked paths and moderate slopes? The design adapted to trekking will bring you comfort, support and protection.
The grip on our soles is labelled CROSS CONTACT®.
To be awarded this certification, boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip level on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field and in the mountains, using a panel of representative testers over 500 km
HOW WATERPROOF ARE THESE BOOTS?
This boot has been validated on the waterproofing test at 30,000 repeatable flexes, i.e. 15 km - 6 hours of walking, in water up to the mid-upper, which today guarantees the best level of waterproofing for your boots.
--> Our assessment indicates a LEVEL OF 3/5 enabling 6 hour waterproofing in hiking under the rain.
The details of tests carried out to assess the waterproofing of our boots is below, in the characteristics section.
MAKING WATERPROOFING LAST LONGER
The waterproofing of boots is often compromised because water gets in at the collar of the boot. To keep your feet dry for longer, it is therefore advisable to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter that will prevent not only water from getting inside through the top, but also pebbles, sand, etc. It is advisable to use a waterproof spray several times a year. This restores the original water-repellent properties and prevents staining.
1 / Use a brush and/or sponge to clean the boot and remove any dirt or mud.
2/ Then leave to air dry, away from any heat source.
3/ Finish by using a re-waterproofing spray to keep optimal water-repellency of the upper and extend the life of the boot.

WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?
WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?
For hiking, try taking one boot size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: keep your toenails short and, before descending, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding forwards inside the shoe.
5 LEVELS OF WATERPROOFING
During the waterproofing test, we test 5 levels of waterproofing:
2,000 flexes (approximately 4 km , 30 minutes of walking)
10,000 flexes (approximately 10 km , 3 hours of walking)
30,000 (approximately 15 km , 6 hours of walking)
50,000 flexes (approximately 20 km , 8 hours of walking)
100,000 flexes (approximately >20 km , 24 hours of walking)
Our shoes are laboratory tested according to two successive tests
Test 1 / We test the efficiency of the membrane only when it is pressured and placed in water, we check the absence of water at the surface, like when you test a "punctured inner tube".
Test 2 / Thanks to mechanical arms that simulate walking, the assembled shoes are half immersed in water and they complete thousands of flexes to check that the inside of the shoe remains dry and it is therefore waterproof.
BUYING TIPS / HOW DO YOU TRY YOUR BOOTS ON?
How to choose your shoes:
1. Try both boots on, standing up, wearing the socks you use for hiking.
2. Tighten the laces correctly
3. Check the following two areas of comfort: the heel and the front of the foot when going downhill.
4. Get up to walk with the shoes on.
5. Try on several sizes and several models.
6. Wear your boots for increasingly long periods to wear them in
These boots were co-designed with passionate trekkers, each bringing their own special skills. For example, one of our co-designers is a chiropodist who helps us fulfil the physiological needs of people's feet and make sure they are comfortable and safe during treks.
TREK 100 leather boots are manufactured in the European Union, in Romania, in a factory that specialises in making trekking boots.
This plant uses only water-based glues with no chemical solvents.
Most materials are of European origin.
KNOWLEDGE OF SPORTSPEOPLE'S BODY
Decathlon SportsLab contributes to the innovation and design of Decathlon products, by increasing knowledge of the human body in its environment.
Our researchers explore the working and needs of sportspeople's bodies as they practice their sport.
Thanks to knowledge of sports sciences, thermal comfort, morphology and perception, our experts contribute to the safety and well being of our sports people.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements:
- tearing of hooks and eyelets
- gluing of the sole
- UV resistance
- abrasion of the sole and components of the upper
- accelerated ageing.
